Is it really dead?

A few local shooters put their 8 shots away a few weeks per year dust off their 6 shot revolvers and shoot a few local match's. The top revolver shooters still score in the upper 50% bracket even though most or our local matches are set up for Limited shooters.

Almost no,

last years Nationals there was 1 shooter running Major, he did placed 10th so it isn't impossible to be somewhat competitive, locally we have a decent group of regular revo competitors about 4 or 5 a month and only get 1 major shooter a couple times a year.

He placed 10th, and he’s one of only 2 people to ever win that match with a major gun. That should say a lot.

And that is only because the two local major revolver shooters that I know (one a vintage Model 25 that he bought just prior to the change (oops) and the other a 625 that I sold him years ago) are two damn cheap and hard-headed to invest in an 8-shot minor revolver! 🤣

Minor pays for itself quickly. The argument of having to buy everything and it’s cost never held any weight once numbers actually started to be put to it.

I shoot my 625s locally with other revo shooters for good practice but at Matches where there are other 8 shot revo shooters, I bring out my 627 to be competitive.

 

I started USPSA in 1988 with a S&W model 14 38 Special 6 shot that I shot PPC with. I was almost always the only revo unless we were shooting Steel Challenge type matches.

 

At 66 I shoot for fun. If it is not fun anymore I have other hobbies that are fun!

If you really want to know if it’s dead, just try to sell one, you’ll get your feelings hurt.

If anyone has a 5” 625 for sale post it on the forum classifieds,I know of two shooters that are looking for one.

Revolver is a very lightly attended division in most places. If your closest competitor is 10% away from you, it doesn't matter what you shoot. Just shoot what you enjoy, and whatever you're motivated to practice with.

I live in Northern Utah over  the last few years the number of revolver shooters has increased. We had five revolver shooters at our last USPSA match, should have 6 at our next, whenever that may be. Each of us need to introduce the shooters around us to Revolvers. I am always ready to loan an interested shooter a gun and holster for them to try.

Hey! I resent/resemble that remark.

Yes but are they going to be willing to pay what you're going to ask for it?

???

Difference in reloading cost is about $20.00/1000.

 

Investment in 9mm (holster + moon clips + grip + tuning + extra odds and ends) = + - $1400

 

So it looks like you break even at 70,000 rounds?
